They may have left Columbus to make it big in Chicago (and they’ve been doing a good job playing on some great bills and generating a buzz not only in the Windy City but on the world wide web), but Loyal Divide has not forgotten about their Buckeye past. It seems like they are playing here more now then they did when they were based in Columbus.
I’m always at a loss on how to exactly describe these guys – they come from seemingly an indie rock (everything from The Cure to Modest Mouse) background but have fully embraced technology and bring a Nine Inch Nails electronic flavor to their output.
Electraplay Studio recently had Loyal Divide into the studio where they recorded “MDLD” which you can see below.
Loyal Divide will be joined by LD, Boombox and Alpha Delta tonight at The Newport. Doors open at 8, show starts at 9. Tickets are $20 at the door.
One of my favorite Columbus albums from last year, Saintseneca’s Last is available on Mama Bird Recording Co. (Saintseneca Daytrotter session on the way soon, too.) You can catch the band at Skully’s on March 10 with Loyal Divide and Way Yes.
